Bro. Lee R. Howell recently returned from his eighth trip to Europe. He served as a musician in the National Baptist Congress of Christian Education held in Mannheim, Germany.
He was a voice major in graduate school at Jackson State University.
Howell has had seven operations on his vocal cords for muscle spasms. The first operation was not successful. It destroyed his singing voice and damaged his speaking voice. Now, Howell says, the piano is his voice.
